Search Suspended For Missing Halifax Kayaker, Will Resume Sunday Morning

HALIFAX (CBS) – Dive teams have suspended their search Saturday at a Halifax lake where a man never resurfaced after his kayak overturned while fishing.

The search will resume Sunday at 8 a.m., according to the Halifax Fire Twitter account.

Friends say the 26-year-old man knows how to swim, but was not wearing a flotation device when his kayak flipped Friday afternoon at Silver Lake.

At least 28 divers from 11 different communities search the lake for hours before calling the search off Friday.

On Saturday morning, dive teams returned to Silver Lake to continue searching for the man.

Divers are searching in about 40 feet of water, though visibility becomes difficult at 30 feet.
